Bill Shorten has hit out at the REIA’s campaign to fight Labor this election, saying:
“Well, the real estate agents, it’s obviously in their financial interest to keep taxpayer money flowing to their business model? You’ve gotta ask yourself, why are they campaigning?
They’re campaigning because they like to have people bidding for houses who are getting a taxpayer subsidy.
Because the more people they have bidding for houses, the more they can charge their percentage on the sale.”Bill Shorten – Labor Leader
The comments come as Bill Shorten and Labor have been accused of inciting a “class war” against professionals and the wealthy.
